In order to achieve the highest quality possible, Postir and Baruzzi agreed that Mazorin’s products would only contain active ingredients and would therefore exclude Parabens, mineral oils, synthetic colours and untested fragrances. For the packaging, the duo invited two Italian architects to design bottles and boxes that would evoke an image of timeless masculine style. And the brand’s name came from the word for “mallard” in Friulano, a language spoken in the Friuli area of North Eastern Italy where Mazorin’s labs and production are located.
I started my trial of Mazorin’s products with the Optimal Face Maintenance moisturiser, which when pumped from the stylish bottle onto my fingers for the first time didn’t induce a very positive first impression: the texture of the liquid white cream resembled that of sun creams that are not easily absorbed. However, after rubbing it on the face, the product proved me wrong: a slight shine finish and a not entirely unpleasant fragrance lingered for a few minutes but soon disappeared, leaving no residue.
